Beccy's Place - Not Beary Happy

I went to BC for a few days to visit friends and completely forgot that a great nephew wouild be  turning two while I was gone. So when I got home I hurriedly made a card and it is off to the mail box.  I chose this poor sad bear as my image  to reflect how I felt. So sorry that it will be late but he is  way too young to ever remember lol!  The image is from Beccy's Place and is called 'Not Beary Happy'. I coloured him with Copics and used paper from a Michaels paper pad called 'Bright Splash'.The cardstock is Emerald Envy  from Stampin' Up. The stars on the elongated rectangle are from a Stampin' Up's embossing folder called 'Lucky Stars' and the brown stars are punched out of a Stampin' Up punch. Lots of Stampin' Up  going on here :O). The butterfly is a Heartfelt Creations die cut from their Garden Romance set.

Mary is hosting our challenge today, and the theme is Things With Wings. Anything with wings will count, birds, butterflies and other insects, fairies, airplanes, even hearts as long as they have wings!

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it has wings.

I decided to make a card using this adorable digital image from 'Sugar Nellie Loves'  called ' Hey Little Birdie'. I coloured her with Prismacolor Markers, using Copics for the flesh tones. The sentiment is a freebie from 'Playing with Paper'. I die cut the bird placed in the circle sentiment from Heartfelt Creations 'Garden Romance Dies' set. The little fairy's hat was made dimensional with pop ups.
